Considering the games you just tried to compare it to, I think this game would be a little too harsh for you.
It is a truely open pvp, city building/sieging, & political MMORPG, sadly the game is dieing, the company did a poor job at building the game, & didn't listen to the community. It realy could have been something.
It's a half dead one
A Legend was Born
It's a (mostly) skill based pvp game, in a harsh and sometimes brutal environment where you may find yourself in pvp at any given time. The only truly "safe" areas are the 3 safe zones, and newbie island (most leave this at level 10, when you promote from your base class of fighter/mage/rogue/healer, but you can stay higher...20 is where you cannot return if you leave, and leveling will be slow at that point anyhow).
You have the freedom to adjust so many things about your character, unlike those unmentionable level based games. You can adjust your stats, your skills, your focus lines, and decide what type of enchantments you want on your gear (still have to aquire it though).
The graphics are not up to the standards of current releases, admittedly. They aren't particularly horrid, but not downright beautiful as many games that are coming out now seem to be.
Give it a shot, if you think you can handle the possiblity of open pvp regardless of if you want it or not. Regardless of if the other person wants it or not, too, hehe.
PK all day.
